• Hugo Static Site

    I had WordPress for a myriad of years – it feels like. As my daily work involves moving clients away to other, less feature rich but more integrated solutions it became more and more pressing to check options for myself. Hugo is written in Go, a language that I chose to implement several big projects. Accidentally, Hugo became an inspiration and source for documentation when I started to look for good articles about Go’s templating language that we use extensively.
  • Go 1.10 party waitlist

    Go 1.10 is not full of new features. But one feature makes me really happy, GOPATH being optional. I will be able to work in my projects folder (my hope, anyway). I’m a member of the Go London User Group, although I have never managed to either turn up or get in yet. I wander if Gophers are as nice people as my e-commerce peeps. Oh by the way, I love math.
  • Simple session store in Go

    I needed to store values in a key-value store that would persist after restarting the program. I’m not good at finding things on the internet until I know what exactly to search for. So instead, I have written a simple package for storing my data session-like way. https://github.com/shoobyban/simplesession is the result. // Simple counter program using session storage package main import ( "github.com/shoobyban/simplesession" "fmt" ) func main () { sess, err := simplesession.
  • Golang experiments, Data Transformation

    Wow, two years without (published) post! I’ve started to experiment with Go in the meantime. I have to admit I’m far from being able to write good code in Go, not that I could tell this from any other programming languages, but hey, it’s something. As my normal day job involves some backend here and there and we are doing some serious ETL magic, I had to look around for a transformation language.
